My interests centre around contemporary issues and themes in democratic governance and public policy. My research is generally qualitative and interpretive in nature. I have a particular interest in the following topics: deliberative democracy in theory and practice; bureaucratic encounters and policy feedback; democratic innovation and citizen engagement in the policy process; policy learning and the role of expertise in democratic politics; court politics in executive government; the politics of public health policy and social policy; and interpretive and qualitative research methods in the social sciences.
